    You may want to edit your poll so people can choose more than one option. 😉 We didn’t send a pic, but if we get a pic in the mail, we put it on the fridge.

    We honestly had spent so much money on the wedding already that we didn’t want to sink more costs into getting prints made of us. Selfish? Maybe. But it’s what we decided lol.

    I think it’s a really nice touch whenever people decide to do it, though. We got a cute one the other day where the couple was sitting at their new house with “Mr.” and “Mrs.” mugs in their hands. So cute!!

    When we get a picture, it goes up on our fridge or into a frame. I love pictures with thank you cards, so we’re including them too!

    I always put them up on the fridge and plan to send them in our cards.

    I’m kind of using a double-standard. I will be including a pic in our thank you cards, but personally, when I receive one, it gets lost in a junk drawer, sorry! lol

    I’d vote for the card itself to include a photo or photos rather than a photo insert. I have kept thank you cards which have photos on them. They’re nice little keepsakes.

    I would change the poll to where you can choose more than one answer.

    If we got a pic in a thank you card I would probably put it on the fridge just because I like having a full fridge and will stay there until something replaces it. We did not include a pic in thank you cards because I personally think it’s a little narcissistic! I think it makes sense to send to people who were not at your wedding, but if people were at your wedding they already saw you in your dress/suit/tux so why do they need a picture of it?

    I will be including a pic in some Thank You notes.  I plan on sending a few larger reprints to immediate famly who would probably display it – parents and grandparents.  Then for my parents friends and other extended family, I’m sending the group picture we took at their table and maybe one of us.  For those that did not attend, I’ll probably include a picture of the first dance or cake cutting.  For friends, I did not include a picture since if they are anything like me they store all their pictures digitally and it would probably end up tucked away in a box.

    If the photo is of close friends or family members, I frame them.  If it’s someone a little more peripheral to our lives, the photo goes in a box, or worse, on the fridge for a while before getting thrown out.

    We’re including a pic. It depends on how close the people are to us and how much I like the picture. Usually I keep it on the fridge for awhile. I really appreciate it though. It’s so fun to see how their pics turned out and to remember a happy day.

    I never thought about this before. I think I might include a pic but only to family members, not everyone receiving a thank you.
